The Mascot

WAVES Naval training school, ca. 1940s.

Watching football this weekend? Maybe this photo of some WAVES at the USS Hunter (aka Hunter College Boot Camp in New York) will help you get some team spirit. Give me an N! Give me an A! Give me a V! Give me a Y!  What’s that spell? NAVY!!!

The photo comes from the New York Historical Society.
